cactus league spring training rates. >> president barack obama: i want to have a chance to publicly say thank you. because, i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we have had. >> president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes, and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> chris: president clinton and hillary clinton, in an unusual joint interview as she ends four years as secretary of state. we're back with the panel, apparently the president called "60 minutes" and said i'd like to do an interview with hillary clinton. now, what makes it so unusual, is that in his four years as president, the only time he sat down with another person, for an interview, mr. obama, was with mrs. obama, not with the vice president, not with any secretary, not with anybody else, and with mrs. obama, so, jeff, one, what do you make of it? will the chattering class here in washington think this is a kind of mini-endorsement of hillary for 2016 and how unhappy will joe biden be at 7 o'clock when "60 minutes" goes on the air.
. hillary never backed down. >> shame on you, barack obama. >> reporter: even when campaigning got ugly. not long after that clinton welled up at the new hampshire diner and ran away with the primary, another victory. in the end she conceded, wrapping up her historic presidential bid. >> although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time. >> reporter: her compassion persists the man she was trying to beat. the former first lady and senator from new york would become madam secretary in 2009. yet now a million air miles. >> 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. >> testifying about who knew what when in light of the attack on the compound. if history is any guide hillary clinton may emerge unscathed once again and reinvent herself. and of course we have all seen her reinvent herself over the years. this goes back 20 years because i started covering her when i was a reporter in little rock, arkansas in 1993. and i watched her go through white water and the questions about the suicide. she never backed down. you notice how even when the hits keep co
administration and the obama administration where they blame the united states for bringing down the rest of the world when it comes to its state of the economy. it looks like now things are almost reversed in a way. tell us about your conversation with cameron. >> when i interviewed prime minister cameron here in new york and he was sort of in the lion's den because he had thrown down the gauntlet with this speech about britain's position in the european union. britain is not fully in in terms of it is not part of the eurozone. it doesn't have the euro but in many aspects it is in and it is a full member. united states depends on britain for the very strong role in international affairs. it helps all over the place whether in trying to confront iran, syria and north korea with sanctions and plays a big role whether afghanistan, iraq. david cameron is saying we like our foreign role. we like you and our economic role in the e.u. but we don't want to be a part of your political role. he is trying to negotiate a half in/half out role for the u.k. that is very concerning to the u.s. because
over at the eyeball network? >> that's right. president obama and secretary clinton will be sitting down with steve kroft from "60 minutes." this is interesting, because it will be their first joint interview. it will air, of course, on sunday. of course, you can expect the two of them to get a range of questions, particularly about benghazi. and we also expect there to be some reflection about secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. of course, she's the most traveled secretary of state. so a lot to talk about during that interview. >> and, obviously, president obama, the first thing he did after being inaugurated was push forward the nominations for treasury and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's t
. >>> and in the big finish tonight, president obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sat down for a rare joint interview with steve kroft of "60 minutes" this weekend. the two discussed their past rivalry, their current working relationship and american foreign policy. it was a public sign of solidarity between the two former rivals. yet that proved to be too much for the folks over at fox news. the "fox & friends" trio complained about the lack of real news, and attacked crawford for not digging deeper into clinton's health issues. >> the interview was awkward. they were giddy saying goodbye. and right at the top, steve kroft said they only gave us 30 minutes, which of course means there is not going to be any real news. and there wasn't. >> but if you give somebody 30 minutes, you could get real into it, especially steve kroft, who is usually awesome. but i think for some reason they didn't dig into anything at all. >> 30 minutes? come on. >> i would like to know, did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? how did she hit her head and get a concussion? >> and the whi
is not ruling out a run in 2016 and then there is hillary clinton, president obama and secretary clinton did a joint interview airing tonight, take a look at that. >> i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. >> president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes and why did i ask me and why did i say yes because we both love our country. >> donna, what was that really? was that a little preview for this is the woman who i want to be president? >> well, i still believe it's too early to talk about 2016. we have to figure out who is going to win the super bowl next week much the truth of the matter is joe biden is a natural like bill clinton, he ahe a natural. he loves politics, reaching out but i do believe that this -- that president obama and secretary clinton have become real good, close friends. he's relied on her. her judgment. he trusts her advice. this is a relationship that i think has been forged during the four years that they've worked very closely together. >> i wa
.s. passport. say it ain't so. >>> first let's get to that joint television interview with president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton. and some revealing new details about their working relationship. listen. >> i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. >> a few years ago it would have been seen as improbable. because we have that very long, hard, primary campaign. in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. and i worked very hard, but i lost. and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state. and i said yes. and why did he ask me and why did i say yes? because we both love our country. >> let me bring in political reporter for "u.s. news and world report" lauren fox and white house reporter david nakimura. david the first sit down interview the president has done with anyone other than the first lady. why do this? why do it now? >> i think t.j. the timing is secretary of state has served for four years. now she's leaving. she's
.c. i question is for bob schieffer. you said all elections come down to the economy. you can make the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot about the campaign -- during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this coun
will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states like west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four
that dianne feinstein and barack obama wants to take away guns. they believe that in their bones. this legislation is so full of loopholes and wants to lay down a predicate to make it easier down the road to check gun owners and sue people who didn't store their guns properly. give the right government to go in people's homes. there is no trust that that is where the democrats will stop it as a down payment on a slippery slope. jon: these are the people in 2008, senator obama sock clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states lik west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of t
. they have worked together since president obama was a senator during the 2008 campaign. he has taken a big role in helping the president shape some of the big foreign policy decisions that have come out of this white house, including drawing down the troops in afghanistan, ending the war in iraq, responding to some of the national -- or natural, rather, disasters that have occurred during president obama's tenure, including japan, haiti, and you remember he was pictured in the situation room after the raid on osama bin laden, so this is someone with whom president obama has worked for quite some time. he has a good working relationship with white house staffers, and just a little bit of biographical information, alex. he lives with his wife and three kids in maryland. he is one of 11 kids himself. president obama coming out right now to announce this new appointment, chief of staff dennis mcdonough. >> thank you, kristen. >> thank you. thank you, everybody. please, everybody, have a seat. good afternoon, everybody, and welcome to the announcement of one of the worst kept secrets in washing
minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his closest advisers. secretary clinton, of course, is stepping down from her post, fueling -- you'd think you're on steroids and not me, seriously. just stop. >> are you juicing? >> she is. >> i had a huge allergic reaction to something. >> we don't want to hear about your rashes, so roll the clip. go. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve, you know -- i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. i mean, you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and it's taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you. you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> yeah. and i, as you know, steve, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden from even hearing these questions. >> boy. you know, they h
professional here in dc. earlier you said all presidential elections come down to the economy. the argument can be made the president obama won a second term on social issues. what we have been served better if the discussions during these debates centered more on the economy? >> i do think, in the end, this one came down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as sort of a guidepost for where he wants to go from here -- i did not hear him talk a lot about, during the campaign, he seemed to be talking about jobs and getting people back to work. i think the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think he thought -- that his people thought that they had -- what they concentrated on -- in some ways this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters through polls and recognizing that the demogr
going forward for the country is that all of us need to help president obama create his legacy which i'm sure he does not want to go down as the president bankrupts america. all of us around the table, regardless of political stripes have a great vested interest in helping him make sure that does not happen, and, of course, the role all of us can play in deciding what do we want to spend our government money on and be an influence to have our voices heard as do we really want to send 55 million dollars to i understand knee sha to help -- indonesia to help improve the infant mortality rate in indonesia when we have babies here who could benefit from that same expenditure. that's enough said. we're delighted to be a part of the american dream. i came out of the army with $800 of accumulative leave pay, and the lord blessed that into $700 million, and that comes from three things, the workers god put in my life, 70 people to help pick stock and interact with clients, and secondly, a hospitable government environment. you had a taxation and a regulatory environment which allowed me to pros
campaign kicked off today. just after president obama took a public oath of office to start his second term in the white house. today secretary of state hillary clinton testified for the second time before stepping down for well-deserved rest. the topic, of course, it was the the 2011 2011 benghazi attack in libya that killed four americans including ambassador stevens. they were waiting for hillary clinton so they could forward the love of chris christie that they hate. today secretary clinton was wrapping up her current job with this forth right testimony. >> as i have said many times i take responsibility, and nobody is more committed to getting this right. i am determined to leave the state department and our country safer, stronger and more secure. >> john: secretary clinton later gave way to a rare display of public emotion when she talked about the risk that men and women of the foreign service take for our country. >> for me this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews.
. >> thanks. >>> i talk with the host of "hardball" chris matthews. i sat down with chris while covering the inauguration earlier this week in d.c. and we begin with his thoughts on president obama's inaugural address. >> i think that the president has certain things he wants to get done and certain values that contribute to that, but i don't think it's meant to be a comprehensive speech, but i think he wrote it himself, a lot of it. and i think he put it on a legal pa. i thought important the part about foreign policy. we've had situations in the past where we had wars with countries and then ended up being their friends. why don't we start being friends. to me, it was all about iran. there is only other country we're thinking about going to war, with it's iran. why fighting the people of iran? why kill a bunch of people iran because we don't like their nuclear program? he wants to avoid that. robin wright says if we don't take advantage of the weapon between now and when they weaponize, we will never have peace with iran it will be endless war with that enormously important country whi
. >> yeah, i don't either. i don't know how she passes on and turns the people down that want her to. >> how close to the surface is it as the father of daughters, i very much want her to run. the iconography if i of president obama is a success and even her run in 2008 was hugely important. how clear is she about her potentially historic role and the fact that as a woman she would become so important? >> it's part of the fabric of her life. she connects on that level in every single place she's visited, you know, 12 corrupts and almost a million miles. she always does a town hall meeting or a meeting with women. it's part of who she is, and she feels that historic role. i think when you look at it as a pragmatic political fact of life for democrats, notwithstanding the extraordinary role that will joe biden has played and continues to play as the partner to the president, this would be the one way to, after eight years of the obama administration, to be historic and somewhat of an outsider and a break-through candidate, and it would be one way to run against some new fresh blood in the repu
